Nearly 10 days are required to make genuine French, Marseilles soap, a cauldron-cooked soap made according to an ancient Marseille process. This ancestral know-how has been handed down by Master soap makers through generations and is still used to this day. Marseilles soap, while dating back to 1688, is as fresh and relevant today as it has ever been.
A natural, hypoallergenic soap
Our soap is solely plant-based. It does not contain preservatives, dyes, additives or animal fat.
Biodegradable and environmentally-friendly
Marseilles is an eco-friendly alternative to chemicals found in most skin care and housekeeping products.
Its generous size and minimal water content make it economical for longer preservation.
And, its recyclable packaging was designed to respect the environment.
Logo of Authenticity
The Savon de Marseille logo guarantees you soap:
Made exclusively from plant-based oils, without chemical additives, preservatives, or fragrance
Made in cauldrons according to the ancestral, 5-step, Marseille process
Directions for Use:
In the Bath: Marseille soap suits every skin type and can be used by the whole family.
Around the Home: It is also an effective multi-purpose household cleaner. It cleans, removes grease marks, and efficiently detaches even the most delicate surfaces and clothes.
For Laundry Care: On difficult stains, lather the soap then scrub the stain before using the washing machine. On delicate textiles (lingerie, silk, lace, baby clothes...), lather the soap with a wet cloth, then rub the cloth lightly on the surface, before letting it soak. Rinse off with fresh water.
Since Marseilles soap contains no preservatives or chemical colorants, the soap may be subject to variations in color and may lose volume with time and according to exposure to light and humidity.
